Start Your RV Rental Adventure in Tacoma, WA

Exploring Tacoma, WA in your RV rental will be a win for the whole family with a multitude of exciting activities that await you. For the car enthusiast in your gang, there’s not just one, but two car museums, hosting the famous Harold LeMay car collection. The art lover won’t want to miss the Tacoma Art Museum and especially the Chihuly Bridge of Glass. What else is there to see in Tacoma? The Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium along with its park and gardens is definitely worth the trip, as is the Washington State History Museum.

Outside the city, lush forests, sandy beaches and rippling waves will greet you. Take your RV rental off the beaten track and explore the many islands, lakes and rivers that flow into the Puget Sound, or visit nearby iconic Mt. Rainier, which makes for a great day trip or camping trip in your RV rental. Pack a picnic and watch the sunset at Owen Beach in Tacoma, or dine at one of the fine restaurants in town. No matter what fun you decide to take in, your comfortable and luxurious RV rental awaits at the end of a fabulous day!

Discovering the LeMay Car Collection in Tacoma, WA

Whether you are a car enthusiast or just along for the ride, the America’s Car Museum of Tacoma will amaze you. With 165,000 square feet hosting three-hundred-fifty gleaming, perfectly restored cars, trucks and motorcycles, you won’t be disappointed. The museum is host to the largest car collection in America. Whether it’s muscle cars that interest you, or rare classics, you will definitely want to stop by on your RV rental vacation!

America’s Car Museum in Tacoma doesn’t stop with simply showcasing the collection, however. There are events and classes as well as seminars and hands-on workshops. If your RV rental trip lands on the third Saturday of the month, you can take your kids or grandkids to Family Steam Days where you all can “design, build, tinker and team together as you explore the world of automobiles and its relation to science, technology, engineering, art and math.” Sounds like a great time to us!

If America’s Car Museum still doesn’t satisfy your car cravings, you can take your RV rental to nearby Spanaway, just south of Tacoma, and see the rest of Harold LeMay’s collection at the historical Marymount. You might take a self-guided tour through the vast showrooms, or choose a guided tour with a historical emphasis. Far more than just a museum, opportunities abound at Marymount! You can drive a Model T, have a tea party, join in at Motorcycle Days or enjoy an evening of fine wine, chocolate and cars.

Marymount has an abundant collection in every genre of automobile possible. Muscle cars, trucks, motorcycles and classics. Be sure to look for the 1948 Lincoln Continental 2-door Club Coupe, an instant and hard to find classic. Or the 1935 BSA Model 105 Saloon, an extremely rare car. The great thing about the Tacoma Marymount Collection is that it is constantly changing. With 3000 cars in the collection, different cars are showcased at different times, so no matter how many times you visit, you’ll always see something new! A visit in your RV rental to Tacoma wouldn’t be complete without a stop at either–or both–car museums!

Visiting Mt. Rainier in Your RV Rental

If the sun is out, Mt. Rainier is hard to miss, especially in Tacoma, WA! The iconic symbol of Washington state towers above the range surrounding it. In fact, at 14,410 feet above sea level, it towers over the whole Pacific Northwest! But seeing it from a distance is a whole different thing than visiting Mt. Rainier National Park in person. So once you’re done dining, visiting animals at Pt. Defiance Zoo and drooling over classic cars in Tacoma, Mt. Rainier is the perfect place to take your RV rental next!

Only an hour and a half drive from Tacoma, WA, Mt. Rainier National Forest has plenty to do, with five developed areas, three visitor’s centers, a museum and several ranger stations. At 368 square miles, you won’t run out of roads to travel in your RV rental! The park has four campgrounds to choose from, Cougar Rock, White River, Ohanepecosh and Mowich Lake. Check ahead of time to see if they are RV friendly so you can be prepared.

So, where to take your RV rental in this vast National Park? What to do first? If it’s one of the many glaciers on the mountain that you are most interested in seeing, we recommend either the Glacier Basin Trail, the Emmons Moraine Trail or the Carbon Glacier Trail. Just remember to stay on the trail and away from the glacier! Along the way, take in the meadows of alpine wildflowers and of course, the majesty of the mountain itself. All this is just a short drive from Tacoma, WA!

Forest with Mount Rainier in the background

Along with the many trails to hike, there are also alpine lakes and rivers to visit in your RV rental. Mowich Lake is the largest and deepest lake in Mt. Rainier National Forest. It is open to non-motorized boating, and of course, fishing and swimming. White River is bordered by towering old growth forest, and is a hot spot for campers and climbers. The peaceful Green Lake is a three mile hike, and so very worth it with its lush forest and partial views of Tolmie Peak.

Speaking of lush forests, Mt. Rainier National Park is home to a rainforest as well. Take this quarter mile hike to experience the only true temperate inland rainforest in the national park. All of this is only a sampling of all there is to do for a truly Pacific Northwest experience. Who knew there was so much within reach of Tacoma, WA in your RV rental?

Basics of Camping in National Parks in Your RV Rental

Setting up camp at a National Park opens up a slew of affordable and lovely campsites and amazing vacation destinations. But you should know, camping at a National Park can be very different from your average RV resort. From campgrounds built in the 50’s to accommodate older RVs to different rules than you typically see at privately owned resorts, preparing for your national park RV rental getaway will go more smoothly if you keep these preparation tips in mind.

Know the Best Route to your National Park

A large number of national park campgrounds are reached by windy and narrow roads, sometimes even gravel roads, because they are located in remote places. The best place to find special information on the road leading into your campground is on the park’s website under the “Things to Know Before You Come” section. Another great tool for navigating roads with your RV rental is a GPS system made specifically for RVs. These systems will not only give directions, but will let you know of any special road conditions, such as width, for RVs.

Remember the Size of Your RV Rental

It has happened to more RV campers than you can imagine. They find an awesome destination, get excited, hop in their RV rental, and show up at the campground only to try and squeeze into a camp site that is simply too small. This can be avoided by knowing the exact measurements of your RV rental including tow vehicle (if applicable), with any slide outs extended, with the height of the air conditioner, etc–ahead of time. When you know these measurements you can look up the size of campsites on the park website or call the ranger station to ask if your specific RV will fit.

Research All Campsite Accommodations Ahead of Time

National park campgrounds are designed to enjoy the environment in its natural state and beauty as much as possible. Since the goal of national parks is to maintain the natural beauty of the area you may find campsites with features like rocks, thick trees, and hilly terrain that can make it tricky to fit your RV rental into. Thoroughly study the campground website to learn all you can about the camping spaces. Another way to learn about the finer details of the campground is to check out travel forums and read reviews of people who have stayed there in the past.

Be Open to Boondocking in your RV rental

Some national park campgrounds are outfitted with RV hookups and modern amenities like a communal bathroom and pay showers, but many do not have any of these options. In these cases you will be doing what is referred to as Boondocking, or camping without hookups. If you have never boondocked you will need to know how your RV rental works using only batteries and perhaps even a generator. Knowing how much power the appliances consume and how long you can go using the battery to power your RV rental will be essential to a comfortable stay.

Expect Rules to Limit Generator Use

If you are at a national park that only offers boondock camping, know that there will likely be rules on the use of your generator. For example, some parks allow generator use, but only during sunlight hours. The best way to get use out of your generator and stay within the rules while also being a good fellow camper is to recharge your batteries for a short time just before sunset everyday.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We offer late model, luxury rental RVs that are fully (and we mean FULLY) furnished.
  • Our rental units are sparkling clean, sanitized and meticulously maintained for your rental.
  • Your RV rental will not have advertising graphics all over it, you’re renting an RV, not a billboard!
  • We have skin in the game – unlike a private individual with one RV on one of those RV rental websites, we won’t change our mind and leave you stranded. We’ll make sure your rental vacation goes off without a hitch (unless you’re renting a trailer, then we’ll include the hitch!)

Our rental units come with the following equipment:

  • Cookware – pots and pans, cookie sheet, knife set, French press coffee maker, toaster, tea kettle
  • Kitchenware – utensils, dishes, measuring cups, cutting board, wine-bottle opener, oven mitts
  • Bedding, kitchen and bath towels, dish soap & sponge, Lysol & paper towels, broom & dust pan
  • Wheel chocks, sewer hose, fresh water hose, pressure regulator, electrical adapter
  • It’s all included, we did our best to think of everything you might need for your RV Rental adventure!

Absolutely! We wouldn’t want to leave Fido home, and neither should you. We only ask that your pet treat the RV with care, and that you take responsibility for any damage or cleanliness issues that may arise. But this is rarely a problem, and dogs love an RV rental adventure almost as much as you do.

At NW Adventure Rentals, the answer is… Great!! Did you know that most of our fleet is privately owned? Through our Leaseback Program, we will rent out your RV and share the rental revenue with you, the owner. We provide free storage, we’ll furnish the RV and insure it (our insurance covers you as well) and we’ll manage all maintenance needs. You get to use the RV whenever you want, and when you’re not using it, you’ll be earning money! Visit our Leaseback Section to learn more.

RV rentals and Travel Trailer rentals each have their distinct advantages. Renting an RV instead of a travel trailer is generally more maneuverable, and also does not require you to own a tow vehicle. You can pull into a rest area and use the kitchen or restroom without going outside, and kids can sit at the table with seatbelts and be entertained while you are driving. A travel trailer rental, on the other hand, offers the ability to park the trailer at your campsite and use the tow vehicle to get around more easily than a sometimes cumbersome RV.

Your RV Rental needs will vary depending on how many people you are bringing, and where you plan to go. If there are two people who plan to go skiing in the mountains, you might consider one of our smaller, all-wheel-drive campervan rentals. On the other hand, a long road-trip with four kids might call for renting a Class A motorhome with plenty of space. Remember, dinnertime and bedtime are when your RV rental will feel most crowded, and however large the motorhome feels when you pick it up, it is bound to shrink once everyone is milling about inside.

Many of our RV Rental customers fly to Tacoma from out of state. You can fly to Seattle Tacoma International Airport, and the best solution for most people is to use Uber or Lyft to get to our RV Rental facility. Your motorhome rental will be eagerly waiting for you!
